REVOLVER | Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3
REVOLVER | A curatorial collaboration by Richard Grayson and Robin Klassnik | 5 September–18 November 2012 | Part 3 Private View: Sunday 28 October 2–5pm

Press Information
Revolver presents works by ten artists made between 1983 and 2012 in discrete spaces in the gallery in a three-part series of short exhibitions of up to four artists. The works are presented in this way so that they can be experienced as autonomous and discrete productions by the artists, but it is hoped that the format of Revolver will also encourage the generation of shifting associations across the works, between the spaces of the gallery and over the timeline of the exhibition. The project explores resonances, echoes and returns and ways that artists touch on shared approaches, formal concerns and themes to generate diverse meanings and outcomes.

In contrast to the usual operations of Matt’s Gallery where new works and projects are commissioned from artists, Revolver, curated by Matt’s Gallery Director Robin Klassnik and artist and curator Richard Grayson, focuses on work that was already in progress or already made by artists new to the gallery. Revolver is the first initiative of a series of collaborations with artists, writers and practitioners associated with Matt’s Gallery that are designed to generate a series of curatorial partnerships and discursive projects. These will not only result in projects integral to the gallery programme but will model curatorial approaches and relationships to inform and expand the gallery in its future operations.

Artists participating in Revolver are: Anna Barham, William Cobbing, Layla Curtis, Benedict Drew, Graham Gussin, Juneau Projects, Tina Keane, Andrew Kötting, Rachel Lowe, and Tai Shani.

Revolver is generously supported by The Henry Moore Foundation, The Foyle Foundation, Arts Council England, A. Bliss Specialist Mounting and Framing, Michael Dyer Associates, ArtQuarters Press, Darbyshire and LUX.
